Yesterday I hosted a session about climate change with Year 10 students (14-15 years old), at the Museum of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

I gave a short talk explaining the relationship between climate change, evolution and extinction, and then the students played with “Climate change“, the board game that I created based on my research.

Learning how climate changes impact animal species gives a better understanding of the actual threats linked to the current climate emergency. Understanding such processes through a game makes the students’ experience more engaging and less stressful than it would be when following a lecture or a talk.
